Fantastic pork baps with crackling, apple sauce, onions and gravy. An absolute must whenever we're in Lyme!!

It's a shame this place is shut for good. I looked forward to dropping into Lyme Regis for a hog roll, have made this place a regular visit over the years the best hog roll I had tasted. Gutted!

Real shame this place has closed. The best pork roll in the world. The highlight of any trip to Lyme Regis. If the owners have moved and opened a shop in another town please tell us where!

16/04/2017 Had many great pork rolls from here in the past. So sorry they have closed. A sign was up for premises to be sold. I wish them all the best in the future.

In Lyme over Easter and as usual looking forwards to the Whole Hog visit - a notice in the window shows they look to have closed for good which is such a shame. We have been going since they opened and the couple that ran it were super friendly and very efficient and the rolls were top notch and great... More

Absolutely delicious bun, although we did struggle to find the Whole Hog as we had walked straight past it. Lovely staff, and the food was delicious and we would definitely return again. Reasonably priced too.

I'm a regular here when we visit Lyme Regis so am gutted to see that it's closed down as of this week and the lease is up for sale. So sorry to see the owners move on. They've been looking after visitors to Lyme for many years

Absolutely lovely. It is very big for one person, so we shared (they were happy to cut it up for us and bag it separately.) I definitely recommend getting all of the toppings; every mouthful brought a new flavour and texture, and I thoroughly enjoyed every part of it. Good value for money if you do end up sharing. The...

We come here on our annual trip, often twice at the request of my fussy son! Such amazing value and the pork bap is fantastic. All the trimmings and crackling too! The husband and wife who own it are so friendly and give exceptional service. Eating it overlooking the sea it doesn't get any better. Thank you, we look forward... More
